end thousand people, referred to tbe

Great Britain became involved in war,
the Canadian Government should sciut
a regiment of troops, to England, fully
equipped, and place them at the disposal of tho Imperial Government.
The statement proroked great enthusi
asm. Major Borden, Commander of

London, Sept. 28.—The Duly Cljron-

"1 have iccoived information of
highest importance as to the noss" .lily of a peaceful solution of the diffl.nl-
ty. Complete estrangement exists between Sir Alfred Milner and Mr. Hof-
nioyor and Afrikander leaders. Persons enjoying thu confidence of the
Transvael Government, however, are
convinced that if the Imperial Government empowers Hnfincycr to assure
the Transvaal that live years franchise

London, Sept. 88.—The decision of
the Volksraad of the Orange I'ree
State to join with the Transvaal in
the ovout of hostilities, although fully
expected, is the lc.ditig news today,
and will naturally stiffen tie l'nprs'
Independent altitude. The Rami's res-
olution has inadu the brotherhood oi'
arms between tho Transvaal and the
Ortiuge Free State, of which hitherto
thero was only a strong probability, un
absolute certainty, and the British
will have tn face the situation.
Tho Volksraad's resoulion was as
follows:
"Tho Rami, having nail paragraph
2 of   the    President's   speech, (ilul   tin-
official documents and correspondence
submitted therewith, having regard
for Ihe strained slate of affairs
■ihoughnut Ihe whole nf South Africa,
which has arisen in ootis'-quenen ol

to hostilities, a calamitous conseqnenni
which to white inhabitants will be
immeasurable.
"Being c inncoted wilh the Transvaal by tbe closest confederacy, ami
Standing in friendliest relations possible with -he Imperial Government.
fearing that, should war break out between them, a hatred between tho
European race would be born wbioh
will arrest and retard peaceful development in the states and colonies of
Africa, and develop a distrust, of the
future.
"Feeling that a solemn duty nsts
upon it of noing everything possible tn
avoid shedding of blend,
"Considering that the Transvaal
Government, during its negotiations
with the Imperial Government, Which
have extended over several months, has
made every etiihavor tn arrive at a
peaceful sclnlioil of the difference rais-
ert ly alii: sol the Transvaal and taken
up by the Imp-rial Government as its

"Resolve I, 'ihat we instruct the
Government to siill * se every means to

provided it Lb deemed not violating
honor and principle* nf the lice State
and Transvaal and wished the minis*
try to make known its opinion that
there exists no cause for war, and that
war against the Transvaal, as now undertaken or occasioned by the Imperial
Government, will moially to war
against the whole white population of
Africa, and in its consequences criminal, for come what may,the Free Stale
will honestly and faithfully fulfill its
obligations towards the Transvaal, by
virtue of a political alliance between
the two Republics. "
intense excitement continues to prevail at Pretoria, whete apparently it is
believed there iB no escape from war.
The Field 'Joniet at Pretoria is again
sawing nut rifles. Commauilering is
a-lively proceeding and all preparations aro being made to take the field.
The Burghers are getting uneasy at
the concentration of British troops between Ladysmith and Laings Neck,
especially   at   Gletchon   and   Dundee.
The nominal reason for concentration
is prof, ctinn of Dundee coal fln'lft, 1 ut
the Poors do uot intend to be caught
napping, aud are now massing around
Vriyhcad, not however, merely as a
protective measure, but to be prepared,
unless British reinforcements aoross
the bonier prevent, lo make a dash iu
force through a portion of Zuiulund,
crossing Buffalo river at a pnint below
Rorkes drift and then seizing tie railroad, cut off British garrisons at Dundee aud Ladysmith from the suutb,
which wonld nnt only interrupt British lines of coinniunicatiou, but would
seriously interfere with the forward
movement. In oulor to watoh this
portion of the railroad exposed to Boer
iiieursinii the British post will be established at Rorkes drift.
The Daily News, which appeals tn
Ihe Government In await President
Krnger's reply before sending a secoti'i
despatch, fays: "If, as has been asserted on behalf of Ihe Transvaal, all
trouble wonld have been asserted on
behalf of tho Transvaal, all trouble
would have been avoided bad Mr.
Chamberlain's last despatch i:.si Friday said convention instead of conventions, we *ln tin believe a British Cabinet would decline to clear the matter
mi. It is for President Kruger to
speak It is, indeed, only a matter of a
consonant; fur we are convinced that
it is iu his power to get the, consonant
cut off.
The Pretoria correspondent of tin-
Daily Telegraph says: "The Transvaal
executive is absorbed in war preparations, Many Boers oppose sggressivo
action on religious grounds. There
have been local thunderstorms and
rains tit Johannesburg ami in various
parts nf the Orange Free Stale."
Loudon, Sept. 28,—Tho Daily Ohron-
icle says:
"We understand, nn the best authority, that the delay attending tin- Boer
reply is due tn hopes still entertained
by tho Transvaal nf a peaceful settlement, The Boers distrust Mr. Chamberlain. They fear that if they made
cunoesssiuns, ho will only increase his
demands, therefore they have been
trying to to approach Lord Salisbury
directly.
"They trust the Premer as much as
tiny distrust the Colonial Secretary.
If Lord Salisbnry would give a pledge
that the Golden bridge was meant seriously, they would venture upon it.
We regret to say that this lost desperate effort bas broken down, siuee Lord
Salisbury oannnt go behind Mr. Chum-
berlaiu without creating a Cabinet
crisis. It is deplorable, nevertheless,
that state etiquette should be strong
enough to obtrnct the path of peace.
We hope it is uot true that Mr. Chamberlain iutends to demand disarmament, a   hoavy   indemnity   anil   the
Dundee, Scotland, Sept.. 28.—On
receiving the freedom of the city of
Dundee today, Mr. A. .1. Balfour, tin-
First Lord of the Treasury and Government leadsr in the House nf Commons, said the Government had longed
fnr and striven fnr a peaceful and hnn-
orable solution of the perennial South
African difficulty. "If that honorable
solution duel not prove *.t peaceful solution, tho fault rests on other heads
than ours." Mr. Balfour would not
say that he bud given unall hopes, hut
e now spoke in a very different tone
from what he should have doun a
month or even a fortnight ago. Th-.*y
bad reached a point, lie added, when,
if be judged aright, those responsible
fci- the policy of the Dutch Republic
refused to give way; a noml nu which
"we could nnt and would not gin*
way." This statement caused au outburst of cheering, Continuing, Mr
Balfour remarked : "The interests of
the South Africans, civilization and
national honor have all made such a
course impossible fi-r us." This called
for renewed cheers.

Hotel Waverly, charged with the crime
nf embezzlement in the sum cf (BO, nn
a -van-ant; issued at the instance of the
'UHiiiigonient of the Parsons Produce
Company.
Parker is a young Englishman of
gond family, and hails fiom Winnipeg,
where he hns been employed in the
offices of the main branch of the Parsons Produce Company, Some four
months ago Parker was sent to Nelson
hy the firm to occupy the position of
bookkeeper and acrountant iu their
house at this place, and has held the
position until yesterday morning,
when he was discharged by the linn.
It is . said that fnr some time past
Parker has been spending money quite
freely and visiting questionable revolts, where he managed tn be relieved
"f considerable sums nf money; fa*
more than a young man occupying his
position cnnl'l afford.
For the past two or three days Par-
In r has been shadowed, so tbat any
attempt on his part to leave the City
could promptly be stopped. The warrant' was served last night, as stated
above, for fear thai when morning
came he would have left the City.
While the information charging him
with the felony places the sum at only
|50 it is said that his shortago will
aggregate nearly ;;■:'.00.
Karly this morning Parker was visited in 1'is cell at the City jail, where
Chief Jarvis had made bim as comfort

Parker has a wide circle nf acquaintances here, aud many of bis friends
weie around last night making anxious
inquiries respecting his trouble.
Montreal,    Sept.    28.—The    steamer
Scotsman, of   the   Dominion  line,   is
ashore   Off   Belle   [lie.     The   steamer
Monlfcrd has taken off 800 passengers,
and   is   now   on  her way un the gulf
She   passed   Heath   Point   at  8 p. m,
The   news   was   received with  joy at

DUNCAN   RIVER COUNTRY.
Naturally Tributary to Nelson—Trade
Should Be Secured.
Mr. W. R. Stevenson, civil engineer
for the o P. R , who is now engaged
nn cnustriictinn nn the road between
Lardo and Trout Lake, is at th*- Phair.
He reports the grading as  nearly   fin
isbed between Lardo and Duncan City,
and track laving is soon to comuicnce
Mr. Stevenson thinks that trains will
he running to Duncan City by the first
of November,and tbat work on the line
will continue throughout the winter.
From Trout Lake tlie road will ron
direct tn Arrowhead, connecting with
the main line of the O. P. K, "The
existence of immense bodies of ore,"
said Mr. Stevenson, "in the Dnooau-
Lardo country has litul on effect rarely
ever witnessed before in any country,
viz: Two railroad companies are building roads into a country before tbey
have anything to haul. But they are
perfectly   safe.    These roads will open
a country unsurpassed in mineral ami
agricultural wealth, Outside ol' il.*-
mines in that section the agricultural
land is of groat importance There
■ re thousands of acres of Al land on
ihe Duncan and Lardo Rivers and at
ear h end nf Tront Lake This land
consists of river bottoms, and part nf
it is covered with a heavy growth of
bay and part with timber, but it is all
good. If a mall should acquire a small
'fact cf land there now.before he could
raise a crop ou it, the best kind nf a
market would be impatiently awaiting
it. Everything that one could raise
thero would oommaud a high price
rigbt at hinuo "
Mr. Stevenson said further, in answer
to a question by The Miner represent-
dive: "That whole country 18 tributary in Nelson, and Nelson should
easily in- abb- to scenic its trade
Chare will he a 'urge trade up there
a*':st year, and it will rapidly iucrease
t-vi-iv season.''
Mr, Stevenson will return to his
.vork today by Steamer Kokanee.

way. Ho is reported as saying thut
capitalists with whom he was in
touch were so much alarmed by the
tendencies of the times in British Columbia that they prefer to look for investments further south, iu Oregon and
California, for instance. The News-
Advertiser is quite overcome by this
intelligence. "We cannot think," it
says, "that many British investors
■will be foolish enough tn prefer mining investnieuts in the States to like
opportunites in British Columbia."
It iB a pity its powers of thinkiug
are so limited. Any one else can think
what it says is so impossible to it. We
have no doubt that even Mr. Cotton,
as he lays down bis scheming for a
moment's rest now and then, can
work up imagination enough to see
with his mind's eye capitalist after
capitalist turn off the trail that leads
to this Province, and head for (be
south, There is the less difficulty in
imagining this by reason of the fact
that it is true. If The News-Advertiser is unequal to the task of thinking
it, some serious disarrangement of its
organism must have occurred. We
should not be surprised if it were a
case of diseased livei. Healthy persons, healthy in body aud mind, have
Beeu the thing that to our contemporary is too impalpable to present itself
even as a vision.
It would be verj curious if it had
not. Our Government and Legislature
havo created alarm where before there
was confidence. Conditions affecting
the mining industry have been thrown
into a stute of violent agitation. We
legislate to keep aliens from our placer
mines, and members of tbe Government, boasting of what they have done,
throw out dark hints of something
more sweeping still. No ono can tell
that a similar measure will not be en-
aoted in respect to our quartz mines.
Without this, however, quartz mining
has been seriously embarrassscd by au
Aot which has brought contention between the mine owners and the mine
workers. The whole business has been
disarranged, with tbe result that devel
opment is practically suspondod. This
is not a coudition to attract capital;
ou tho contrary, it is a condition to
discourago it. We all know that ii
does discourage it. There is uot a p*'r
son in the Province associated with
the operation of our mines who hus
uot actual knowledge of instances of
investors being driven away to othct
fields. However much we may regret
this, we cannot be so unreasonable as
to say it i-i foolish,as the foolish News-
Advertiser does. Capitalists are uot
seeking investments in British Columbia so long as the miuing industry is
in its present confuse 1 coudition. And
for the confusion it is iudebted to the
Government of which Mr. Cotton is
tho most influential member. Perhaps
that will account for tho mental inability of Mr. Cotton's newspaper.
The reference in this paragraph is
no doubt to the old scandal about
which dark hints have been thrown
out from time to time for several
months past, and the particulars of
which it was alleged Mr. Martin had
gone to Colorado to gather up and
briug home for us*- iu his attack on
Mr. Cotton, which is understood to be
booked for au early day next sessiou.
sit is not always easy to decide what i
best to do with old scandals. A good
deal depends, of course, on the uatnre
uf tbem. and without some knowledge
of this one it is impossible to judge
whether it is serious enough to require ventilation at this late day.
Some scandals am bo bad that tbe stigma of them properly attaches through
life. Others arc bad enough when fresh
to visit on the offender the severest
pains and penalties,but with time they
shrivel np and die a natuiul death.
Mr. Cotton has lived in British Columbia a good ninny years. During
that period liis life, as far as The
Miner knows or has reason to believe,
has earned for bim the reputation
which belongs to every respectable citizen. He is au able man, and according to his light and opportunities has
done the Province some service. Perhaps it will be better to let it go at
that. We do not know that there is
auy occasion to go back to the old rec-
oids in Colorado, assuming that they
contain anything to reflect upon his
character of those days. Let ns con
fine our estimate of him to such reputation as he has made for himself as a
citizen oi" British Columbia. That is
of sufficiently long standing to be
cepted as the measure of his present
character. What Mr. Martin charges
againBt him is auother matter. If as a
Minister he has falsified the records of
the Exeoutive Council, he has exposed
himself to very grave censure, and we
are untitled to take the matter up for
the reason tbat it affects his reputation
of today. But unless of an extremely
heinous character, it will be better all
around if that old Colorado affair be
allowed to slumber in peace. It should
not be necessary to dig in the grave of
dend scandals to find a weapon with
which to belabor the life out of a Government that is already on the point
of yielding up the ghost.

Lord Loch, a former Governor of
Oape Colony, in a recent speech on the
Transvaal situation, said : "War would
be terrible, indeed; its effects could
scarcely be realised except by those
Wbo knew South Afrloi, and the questions of complex interest which wen
involved. It may be settled at the
very final moment—I fervently hope
that it may; bnt if the questiou of
control is raised we can never relax.

Dominion of Canada will be watching
with deep anxiety for tho issue of a
movement the main and splendid
principle of which would be unity-
unity of feeling and unify of purpose. "
The question of control would be raised, and that, would mean war to a
finish. On the other poiut, tho feeling
of the Dutch, the latest dispatches give
rise to the fear that his Lordship's expectation would not be realised. It
looks today as if, in tbo event of war,

LET  IT  LIE.
Tbis iB taken from The Victoria Colonist :
"Tho Vancouver World refers to a
matter in connection with the Minister of Finance,whioh is alleged to have
occurred at i*'ort Collings, Colorado,
some time ago. The muttei i., a very-
serious one, and we think The World,
in justice to itself and the publio as
Well as to Mr.Cotton, ought to publish
all it knows about it. If.as Tho World
alleges, Mr. Cotton was mixed up in a
transaction at Port Collings whioh will
not bear the light of day, the people
of this Province ought to know it. If
the transaction, whatever it was, is
one tbat will Btand investigation without reflecting in any way upon Mr.
Cotton's reputation, it is fair to the
Province, whose funds are iu Mr. Cotton's custody, and also to Mr. Cotton
himself, that this faol should be made
known. It is said that tho whole matter has been fully written up in a Denver newspaper. Will The News-Advertiser tell the pnblio if this is the case?
Until this has been cleared op, and
until Mr. Martin's charge of deliberate
falsification of the records of the Exeoutive Council has either been disproved or satisfactorily explained, there
will naturally be u great dtal of uneasiness that Mr.Cotton should remain
in the position he now oconpies.
There iB not tho least room for doubt
that very serious mutters have been
publicly'stated to Mr.Cotton's disc-red-
Replying to tho statement that, the
coal miners of Vancouver Island do not
claim that they ought to be given ten
hoars' pay for eight hours' work, a
Government paper says: "Neither do
the metul miners of the Interior."
The reply is not a truthful one.
Through their leaders and Unions tho
metal miners of the Interior are claiming that they ought to be giveu ten
horns' pay for eight hours' work. This
is their demand, and because it is resisted by tbe mine owners and managers tho Unions call on I their men
and operations arc suspended. For
years tho men had worked ten hours a
day for a certain wage, It was never
pretended that that wage was inadequate ; on the contrary, it was accepted
as satisfactory,and operations progressed with the most per feet harmony be
tween employer ond employed, There
has been no alteration in the conditions

when working ten hours for $;!. fit),
they would be, if anything, letter paid
today at the samo wage. The mine
owners and managers aro willing to
continue that wage. The Legislature

day down to eight hours, und the men
say tbey ought to have Ihe old pay.
notwithstanding the tendency is toward
cheaper living, and the conditions

mounted. It is very probable that a
line north will be built,.but it will
not be exclusively, or priuciDally, because of tbe coal truffle. The Crow's
Nest via Nelson is destined to furnish the required short route. The extension to this city will be made
soon, and the Fenticton road is already
under construction. Connection thence
will follow as a mutter of course.
When completed, as it will be, we
shall have the shortest route that -an
be provided. We shall all. nevertheless, wish success to tbe Fort Steele
project. Railways open the country
aud develop its resources, nnd from
them we =11 derive benefit, if not directly, then indirectly.
A favorite ii version with some of
the Eight-Hour advocates is to lacerate
the feelings nf tho Slocan managers by
telling them that the mines elsewhere
are in full blast, aud then mildly insinuating what fools tbey are to remain
out in the cold. While their mines
ure closed, it is said,thousands of miliars are given all the work they can do
In the Boundary country. By one authority the number employed is 8,290,
who cam in monthly wages (816,000.
This is supposed to harrow up tho souls
jf the Slocan managers and drive them
to the verge of suicide. But the managers know- better. So docs The
Midway Advance, whose atteutiou has
been drawn to the figures, 8,2(10 men
and a pay roll of 1816,000. It is iu a
position to know something of tto situation, and it says: "It is, in our
■pinion, doubtful if there are moie
thau one-fourth of tbe number of miners employed in the mines of the Boundary country.'' Between 825 and 8,880
is quite a gap, but a Ministerial apologist has no difficulty in spannig it.
Mr. Greenwiiy in Manitoba is in io
hurry to bring on the elections. We
do not know that he is in u panic of
fear, but it is s>»fe tu say that fear is
by no means entirely absent. His own
seat was cimsideied so unsafe that he
induced tbe Legislature at tbe last session to strengthen it by a gerrymander. His Attorney-General will certainly l,c defeafed in South Winnipeg ;
his Minister of Public. Works will be
overwhelmed tn Portage la Prairie;
bis Treasurer is far from safe in Centre Winnipeg, and even with hie gerrymander Mr. Grcenway himself is nnt
cocksure for Monntain. The only Minister whose re-election is regarded us
absolutely safe is Mr. Meiklo in Bir
tie,       an I he,        worthy     gentle
man, is too iunocent to harm any one.
With the prospect of suoh havoc among
the lenders, little  wonder  Mr. Green

"Dividends," says   The Mining and
Scientific Press." are essential lo
success in a mining enterprise." On
which The Victoria Times remarks
"We thought as much, and always had
a lurking suspicion that the purpose of
mining was to produce dividends, and
nnt merely for the fun of the thing."
Whioh ouly goes to show how lamentably behind the times The Times is.
If it were to study the Eight-Hour
press of the Kootcuays as it should, it
would know that mine owners have no
right to dividends, but are expeoted
and required to distribute their earn
ings in tho form of increased wanes
That has been laid down as a moral
obligation from which there is no
escape.
The Kootcnaian is a little puzzled
over Mr. Cotton, who visited Kaslo
tho other day and invited the business
men of tho town to interview him. Of
the Eight-Hour Law he has nothing to
say beyond the stereotyped phrase, "it
is here to stay." Says The Kootcnaian; "Aa Minister of Finance it was
thought he would feel it incumbent
upon himself to find out what amount
of revenue the Governnient was losing
by theso rich mines beiug closed, but
he did not manifest much concern
about the finances." Why should be?
It was not as Minister of Finance be
made the tour of Kootenay, but as
Minister of Humbug, determined, if
possible, to beat Mr. Joseph Martin
and Mr. Molnnes at their own name
and hold the labor vote for the Govern,
ment.    The   finances of   the   Province
The Bar Association of Victoria is

get a very clear conception from an
aooount published ill The Nanaimo
Herald; but in its editorial column 11
mnkes this statement : "The thing
which most calls for attention is the
fact that the Company aro cutting

which appeals strongly to their judgment and sense of right, Be that as it

thinks this is very wrong. Perhaps it
in, but the Nanaimo paper should remember, even in tho height of ils indignation, that with tho assistance of
the Government the Miners' Unions
are cutting tho hours of labor aud increasing wages. Wherein is ono worse
than the other? If tbe Unions have a
right to cut down tho day from ten
hours to eight and to demand tho ten

Tho Ferine Free Press doubts wheth-
tliere are two merchants in that
town who know that there nre any
wholesale houses in Nelson. This is
not nn accurate guess. It was probably
not intended to be; it. is the method
adopted by our contemporary to give
emphasis to its point that wholesalers,
«s well as others,must advertise if they
expect to do business, Aud a good,
sound, common sense point it is. Nelson is fast becoming a wholesale centre for the entire southern portion of
the Province, and it is rather curious
that such knowledge of fhe fact as exists is due, not to the wholesalers themselves, but to the gratuitous circulation
oil it given in tho news columns of the
press. That may speak well for fhe

wholesalers may conclude for themselves how it is calculated to reflect on

Of tbe seven typhoid patients at the
general hospital, two ure from the outside having been sent in from con-
trnction gangs, and it may be taken
fnr giauted that tbeir illness is dne to
tbe fact that they drank surface water,
such as its found in some streams and
so-called springs. The other five
cases are from the City.
The Misses Crickemay hnve three typhoid patients, all local cases,and have
had but six during the fall. When
seen by The Miner representative yesterday, they stated that this summer
was incomparably ahead of the last
from a health stnndopinl. Tbe hospital
was filled up last fall, lint principally
hy cases s*-nt in from the Crow's Nest
Pass and other lines under oonstrnu-
tion. But there wero more local cases
last year   than   this.
Several doctors were interviewed by
The Milier yesterday, and while some
of them were more optimistic than
others, the concensus of opinion was
that the health of the City was much
better than it has ever been before.
Dr. La Ban stated tha: tbere is less
sickness in the City this umm than
ever before. There is not much typhoid considering the population. The
local cases c mill bo traced to the practice of some people of drinking from
Streams ami serines Dr La I au is
the City's medical health officer and
bis advice to the public is to di ink
only City water. The surface water is
full of baoteiia, and he said that some
of his case* wero directly attributable
to the water in streams and springs,
He had made several examinations of
the City water, and bad never found
any living bacteria in it. Tbe city
water, he fonnd, was purer than that
supplied by any citv in British Columbia. It is drawn from a source i-biue
where thero has beeu habitation to
pollute it. He Strongly advised all
householders to connect with the City
mains and uso only (he Oity water. As
the sanitary arrangements of the City
improved, the sickness would become
less und less each year,and would show
a decreasing number of typhoid cases.
It. Forin said that there was no
reason why Nelson should not some
day he a great health resort. It is a
remarkably healthy town, and it is gj-
ing to improve. The citizens must assist the City in carrying out the system of sanitation. This year showed
a great improvment over last. Most
of the cases last year were from the
outside, and notwithstanding the largi
increuso of population, the number of
local oases was below the murk of last
year. This was explained by the great
increase in the perfection of the sewer-
ago system. This wns a cool summer,
which accounted for the lack of sick
ness tn tho fall, for warm weather re
duces a sytem until it is very susepti
ble to germs iu the air.
Dr. Simonds also stated that typhoid was not ns prevalent as it has
been iu previous seasons, and what
there is of it is of a very mild type,
Ho did not know of a death due to typhoid. He thought that a stop should

There has been an epidemic among

Dr. Hall sjid that the eases of typhoid were traceable to the water and
io uonsnined by tho patients, Ice, l-e
considered, was as important as water,
for it was often liable to give one
fever, and great cure should bo exercised in using it. The city was fairly-
healthy, according to him. In the

A CURIOUS   RESTORATION.
About the 1st of July, last summer,
Dr, H. L. A. Keller, of Ymir, was
making a trip up Kootenay River to
inspect some mining property, and on
ihe trip he lost a silver oiuarette case
to which  he  attached great value, it
being a present from an old friend,    it
was si arched for oarefnlly without
avail, and the doclot returned without tbo knowledge even of where
ho had lost it. He came to the
Miner olliee nnd   advertised the case as
lost, describing it accurately,and offer*
'duicwai'ri of five dollars for the
finder of the name. Weeks passed, and
no tiding of the lost case. But anything advertised iu 'the Miner could
not slay lost forever; it was bound to
turn up somewhere. Mr. Archie John-
sum, of this Cily, was up ou the
Kooteuay Rivet not long since, to
Ward's Lauding. Uo was around the
■ .oat Louse,and the boatman In looking
i.u- something opened up an old chest,
nn,villi oeils ai.d ends of almost
everything imaginable, Among all of
this old material lav the lost cigarette
case. Mr. Johnston examined it nnd
recognized it as the one advertised for
in The Miner, by the initials ou it.
Upon inquiry, the boatman told liini
that not long since be had been out

saw something bright on the bottom of
tho river, and taking bis fish net ho
suooeeded in getting it. Not knowing
who it belonged to he had put ituwuy.

him and returned it to Dr. Keller,who

mediately forwarded $5 to tbo boatman, who gratefully acknowledged the

THE  PASSING THRONG*
The Large Amount of Passenger
Traffic to and From Nelson,
Tho pages of an hotel register can
always be taken as a criterion of the
importance of a town. This ynur the
passenger truffle to and from Nelson
has been mnoh gieater than it over
was before. Tho opening of the Crow's
Nest Line has brought through Nelsou
hundreds of people, who, without that
route to and from the East, wonld havo
never hnve visited the Kootenays. Yesterday a Miner man examined tho rag-
'atersof the Phair and Hnme to get an
indication of the increase iu travel in
the last year. The names were oount-
ed for the first 22 days in September
last year and this. Up to the 22nd
last year the Phair had just 800 arrivals,and up to last night this year there
were 4SS names on the register for September. The corresponding figures for
the Hume were 1110 and 4(i."j. Tho total
last year was therefore 610, against 050
this year, or an increase of over BO per
cent, which is a very creditable showing. Nino hundred and fifty arrivals
for the two ho'els for 22 days speaks a
great deal for tho importance of Nelson.

It is understood the Mackintosh Hyn-
iltcate did not make the second payment ot the famous Red Line Group.
It appears that Pete Larson, who owns
a one-lift!) interest in the group, refused to sign the original bond last winter, in favor of Oollett , Starbiid and
Robinson fur ifoO.OOO. Last sprirng
Oollett, Starbird and Robinson rebond-
ed the property to the Mackintosh
Syndicate for *100,000. Larson also
refused to sign this bond, therefore
they could only give a title to a four-
liftl.-s interest in the property. So this
is probably the reason that Mr. Mackintosh did not tako up the property.
It appears that Messrs. Collen, Star-
bird and Kubiiison restaked a fraction
situated between the Red Liue and
White Elephant groups, called the Red
Line Fraction owned by P, N. Taylor,
('. B., on the grounds that he, Taylor,
used monuments instead of posts.it being above timber line, and that whoever took over the Red Line group
would need this fraction,and that thev
asked an unusually large figure for the
ground. So, taking everything in'o
consideration, the Mackintosh Syndl
cate bave »-ood grounds for not taking
np the bond under the existing rundi-
Hons.

Gallop, A force of men have been

other eight claims have exceptionally
fine showings of ore. Development
work done so far shows a decided improvement. Mr. Gallop is one of the
pioneers of the Kootenay country, and
has been one of the main factors in
bringing the Windermere Mining camp
to the notice of  the miuing world.

In speaking of the progress of tho
Boundary country, Mr.Sutherland said
it was remarkable. "Why, if I had nor
known where I was going when I arrived at Phoenix, 1 would have been
lost. It bon- no resemblance to the
place I left last January. It has built
up surprisingly. The townsite company bave si.1*1 every lot they bad.
Greenwood has improved wonderfully;
so, also, has Grand Forks, The Yale
Hotel at Grand Forks is tbe finest hotel in the Kootenay country, It is a
credit to British Columbia." '
When asked about the difficulties
arising from the Eight-Sour law, Mr.
Sutherland was reticent in a degree,
but said he did not think there would
ho any considerable improvement
among tbe mines until a change in the
right direction had been effected. He
said •
"We are employing our miners at
the rate of t-i'i.,j(i per day of eight hours
for machine men, and $3.00 pet day of
eight hours to hntnniorsmcii. This is
dry work, In wer work fhe wages nre
,")0 cents extra. In shaft work our bain*
mersuien are getting $11,60 pet day of
eight hours. This has been the prevail
ing wage in these mines for 18 months
before the present company was formed, and the same in the Bvenitg Star,
at Slocan City. I bave always paid
$3.fit) to machine men for 8 hours woik
in wet ground, For instance, in tbe
livening Star, at Slocan City, I have
paid tor the post 18 months $8.50 to
hammersmen and $*J to machine men
for sinking in eight hour shifts. In
dry work I bave paid iu proportion for
10 hour shifts."
CO. Bennett, of Vancouver, managing director of the Kelson Poormau

Mr. Hugh Sutherland, managing director of the Dominion Copper Company, whose property is located at
Phoenix, is in the Oity for a few days.
In conversation with a Miner representative last night, Mr. Sutherland said:
"file company's new compressor at
the mines is now running smoothly
We are running four drills We do not
intend to put in any more machinery,
iiot for some time at lest. We will not
put up it concentrator or mill. We
have been developing the Brooklyn and
Stemwiuder properties for two years,
and will continue development work-
tor at least another year. We could, if
necessary, mine 500 tons of ore per clay
at, this present time, but. our intention
is to let tbe ore stand and keep tunneling away at development. The policy
of our company toward our employees
will always be based npon fairness and
equity. We have alroady giveu orders
for the ereotion of a number of cottages
lor the married men in our employ
and will build forty more if needed, so
that any self-respecting man of a family, in our employ can have a real
comfortable home and a permanont
"iie. The cottages will have five rooms | ]mll(j them

"British Columbia is now receiving
more attention in London than it ever
did before,'' said Mr.Finest Mansfield,
who has just returned from a business
trip to Europe, to a Miner reporter
yesterday. "This is due to the excellent
results that bine b?en obtained from
the B. C. ores. In New Zealaud,
South Africa, nnd Australia the ore
does uot exceed in bullion value $1*5
per ton,Wbile oies iu British Columbia
ure far above that amount. Tho great
bulk of tho Province is still in the ex
perimontal stage,but so far indications
warrant the outlay of oapital to treat
the ores, and at present British capital
seems to be inclined to come to this
section.''
Mr. Mansfield  came   In   British Co
lmnbin  a year ago  and   secured   the
Joker group, ou Ihe north fork of Kaslo Creek, for a London syndicate.   The
properties were almost inaccessible,and
in spite of the discouraging prognostications   of   many experienced  miners
Mr. Mansfield went to work   to develop the properties,took supplies over the
glacier, ten   thousand   feet  above   sea
level, on men's backs, built his cabins
in three feet of snow, und developed tin
mine iu such a way   thnt   it   gave   remarkable results, Theiewere tho usual
drawbacks in this work, on account oi
the excessive cold, but these difficulties
only stimulated Mr.Mansfield to greater efforts, and every obstacle was overcome as   it   presented   itself,    llavinj,
made a success ot   a   property  againsf
snob   odds, Mr. Mansfield   gained   the
confidence  not    only of his principal*
but other large capitalists, who, when
he went to Europe, approached him t<
secure properties for them.    He is now
here   representing   some   of   the  most
prominent   corporations  of   England,
md  will   secure  properties whioh   he
deems to ho the making of mines.  Mr.
Mansfield does   not seem to   have been
much bothered  hy   his extremely bns.i
three  months in tho old  world, for hi
returned   with   every   evidence ot   hi.
old-time energy still   being   up to tin
concert pitch.    When asked  if. in th't
event of  war in the Transvaal, capital
would be Reared away   from properties
there, to the benefit of  J'ritish Columbia, Mr. Mansfield said that for tbe tils'
few   months we would   feel the resul
of an outbreak, for the money for niiu
ing   investment   generally   would   le
tighter, but ultimately  it would   draw
capital   to   British   Columbia,   where
thero   is no   danger   of   such a trouble
ever breaking out.
Regarding the effect ot the Eight-
Hour law, Mr. Mansfield said that
every mining country will come sooner or later to tho eight hour day for
underground work, but that tho wages
would have to he r.-dui-ei'. When the
wagrs are reduced th** cost, of living
will h1-u In* reduced, and consequently
the miner will find that hois jnst-ns
well off so earing high wages when
liviug is as excessively high,as he is al
present. Among London capitalists
the Eight-Hour law is not discussed as
much as the wages que tion, for it is
considered over there that wo now give
too high wages.
Mr. Mansfield leave-shea-fly for Australia uud New Zealand to look after
his mining interests theiv.,but his cbief
attention will be hereafter devoted to
British Columbia, which he consideis
as a country wondrously rich in minerals. Early next year he will develop
and open np many properties in various districts of the Kootenay, and will
iver to  large companies to
electricity, a contract hhving been
made with tbe Bennington Falls
Company to supply the necessary
power. Tbe Canadian General Electric Company guarantees to deliver the
motor a', d set it by the first. A complete system of eleettic light and telephone is also being installed. In the
Poormau mine itself development
work is being carried on with all
speed by the aid of machines, nnd at
present, ore calculated to supply the
mill for four years is blocked out. The
compauy own five locations, on OIK
other besides tbe Poorman, the White,
considerable work lias already been
done; unfortunately this work was not
done on the lead. It is the company's
intentions to immediately start work
again on tilts property, and us the
value of. tho quartz from the. lead is
well known as one of the richest on
Toad Mountain, there is no doubt thai
ttie returns to the company will imply
repay them for the consistent manner
in which they have developed the
properties since securing them. The
ore bins u'e now full, about a thousand
tons being on hand, and as tho vein
in the Poormau has developed shows a
width of three feet, the question of being able to kcap the mill running has
long since been.solved V. A. Harney,
general superintendent of the mine,
was in town with' Mr. Bennett, and
left for the mine yesterday. Mr.
Bennett left for Vancouver yesterday.

A new and important strike has
been made on the Bornite Bank property, situate four and one-half " iles
south of Nelsou on Morning Mountain
Mr J. K. Cranston, who at present is
managing the property f(ji n Toronto
and a Rossland syndicate, was io the
City last evening. In speaking of the
property to a representative of The
Miner, said :
"There is considerable development
done at tho Bornite Bank, anil it all
shows up good ore, but in the past. I'm a
days. I have uncovered what I think
to be the best body of ore tbat has yet
been discovered on the Bornite Bunt*
group. I started four men to work on
a new place on the ledge and at a
depth of ten feet, whern we ure now.
have encountered a solid body of high
grade shipping on five feet thick. A
sample of this ore has been sent to the
Spokane Exposition and another sample of it can be seen in tbe show window of the Nelson Hardware Company's store. All of tbe veins on th*s
group carry good values. In my opinion, ou Morning Mountain is a good
place to own property. I think there
is no better place, anywhere in the
Province." Mr. Cranston is a well
informed, practical raining mnn, and
his judgment is oortainly of groat
value.

The Silver King mine was the scene
of :. vt'ty pleasant incident yesterday,
pleasing uot only to the active partioi*
pun's on both sides, but to all thono
who appreciate what it moans to tbe
prosperity oi the district that the relations between Ihe employers and em
